*Note: This initiative has ended.
The World Health Organisation recommends mothers worldwide to exclusively breastfeed infants for the child’s first six months to achieve optimal growth, development and health. Thereafter, the babies should be given nutritious complementary foods and continue breastfeeding up to the age of two years or beyond. It is with this in mind that U Family launches Project Liquid Gold.
About U Family

The unit was subsequently re-named as U Family in May 2008 and expanded its work to support working families by advocating pro-family practices at the community and workplaces. With its current outreach base of more than 200,000 members, U Family aims to develop a workforce with high women employment rate supported by strong and happy families.
